Odds 'n ends over the week about books and reading that caught my eye. You've probably seen some/most/all of them, but just in case:
- Cover versions: why are UK and US book jackets often so different? -- Frankly, I disagree with the story's take on Clinton's US cover, but the rest of this is quite interesting. Love reading this kind of thing.
- What Writers Can Learn From Goodnight Moon -- Don't know much about Ng, but I enjoyed this.
- 12 Words with Luca Veste -- 1. I think this interview "style" is pretty cool, and I want to go read more of them just for this and 2. Veste is always entertaining. Put the 2 of them together, and you've got something.
- 13 Literary Takes on the Lives of Animals -- haven't heard of any of these, but might track a few down
- 10+ Times Writers Took Book Dedications To Another Level --
- Mysterypod with Ace Atkins -- Atkins talks to Stephen Usery about his latest Quinn Colson and Spenser novels, and race relations in the South and Boston.
- Paradox Bound by Peter Clines -- looks like a fun time travel novel through US history.
- Horizon by Fran Wilde -- which serves as a good reminder that I've inexplicably not read Cloudbound.
